Build a Rocket Ship
Plan a trip to the moon or through the rings of Saturn while you show your child how to make a rocket ship. Fortunately, you don’t need a NASA budget to make this rocket a reality. This activity requires time and patience, but it's a great way to teach kids about construction and measurement. Your kid will put her creativity to use as she paints, decorates, and designs. This project requires a lot of cutting with a sharp utility knife. Make sure you do these steps yourself, but encourage your child to help with measuring and assembling whenever she can.
